I complete agree, osso. There are a lot of great people here. But more and more of them leave every day, or only post on ancient threads. It's sad.
It seems like even the "libetards" have become a bunch of Fox news babies who can only spout a bunch of finger pointing nonsense.
Sometimes I think maybe we just know each other too well. I've been hugely insulted and terribly offended here by people revealing old wounds and personal information. I know you have too. But we haven't given up and resorted to infantile behavior.
I just miss the old days where we could hate on each other with well reasoned debate and sometimes even find something we could agree with each other on. There are a lot of people on here that I disagree with on big issues in major ways but it was always possible to discover their humanity and connect with them. Now it's all "you like guns so I hate you" or "you don't believe in evolution so I hate you and I'm going to downvote all of your threads and call you names", or "you're asking a question about barbequing and I'm a vegetarian so I'm going to downvote you".
It's making me crazy.
